Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has reportedly paid 24 gold coins as bride price to marry, Gumsu Sani Abacha, daughter of late military dictator, Gen Sani Abacha.
Buni who is also the chairman, caretaker committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress tied the knot with Gumsu on Wednesday at the Abuja residence of the bride’s elder brother, Mohammed Abacha.
Gumsu is now coming as the Governor’s fourth wife, after he married his predecessor’s daughter, Adama Ibrahim-Geidam as his third wife in 2019.
The 45-year-old daughter of the late head of state was previously married to a Cameroonian multi-billionaire, Bayero Mohamadou. But the 20-year-old marriage crashed in 2020.
Some dignitaries in attendance include the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Hameed Ali; National, Commissioner, Refugees Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, Bashir Garba-Lado.
Others are Kano-based Islamic cleric, Aminu Daurawa; Katsina State governorship aspirant in 2019 elections, Yakubu Lado-DanMarke, and many others.
The price of a gold coin hovers around the $2,000 mark, making the value of the bride price approximately $48,000 (N20 million).
A cool amount for a new wife…
